I arrived this afternoon and settled into Beachside Villas for the next three weeks. Lots of activities planned so may hold the trip report until arrival back home. It will be a different vacation for me this time so lots of adjustments for sure. Happy to be in a place where we made wonderful memories together, but many sad moments too.

Welcome back, Elizabeth. It was nice to bump into you all last night. Hope your time is as enjoyable as ours has been. And I need not tell you, as a repeat guest here, how nice your BSV time will be. Aren’t the waves and surf wild this morning?!


Respectfully,

pat

We hope you enjoy your vacation. I'm sure there will be happy & sad tears. We would loved to have met you but we are leaving St. Maarten today. You have entertained us for years with your trip reports and we always marveled at all the activities you and your husband packed into your vacations. Best wishes.

Elizabeth--I'm sure it will be a bittersweet trip but I hope you enjoy yourself. So many memories, but Beachside is a wonderful place to be.

Looking forward to seeing you soon! I'm sure we'll share some great memories and perhaps a glass or two of wine. A toast to sweet David will surely be on the agenda!!

Have a wonderful vacation. Good timing to get out of the snow here in Ontario. Sounds like it will be a time to remember past times and to make new memories. Enjoy!

I arrived a few days ago. The number of blue roofs, no roofs, and empty shells that I saw while landing were a bit daunting. Still, the best thing that we can do for the island is to be there, and to spend money. Recovery doesn’t happen overnight.
